Losing a pet can be overwhelming. After our cat died recently, I felt so lost and alone yet the memories were so vibrant in my mind. I knew I had to find a way to channel the energy into something that would help me overcome the sadness. A photo book allowed me to tell her story in photos and words and start my healing.
I searched my photos on Lightroom using keywords pertaining to my cat and put them all in a “Collection”. I used the Lightroom “Book” mode and created a quick and easy book linked directly to Blurb. The simplicity was just right for this project where I wanted to quickly get my words down. I made a 7″x 7″ soft cover book.
The following are some excerpts of the book:
What she was like as a kitten.
Her relationship with the other animals.
How she played and her favorite toys.
Fun photos and a story about a specific day.
Favorite details – her sounds.
Her impact and what she taught us.
We all miss you soo much. We now have this wonderful book to look through and remember all the things we love about you.
What a power story and an amazing member of the family! You are missed little girl!
So sorry for your loss Mary! What a beautiful book!!!
